SABA-CO serves both the interests of South Asian attorneys as well as the larger community through substantive programming, community outreach, and legal support. This year, SABA-CO’s Gala will feature traditional dance performances and recognition of our award winners: The Cornerstone Award, The Service and Leadership Award, The Young Lawyer Award, and The SABA-CO Scholarship.
Your sponsorship of this historically sold-out event demonstrates your support for SABA-CO as well as its mission to the legal community and community at large. The gala sells out quickly, so secure your attendance with sponsorship opportunities.
Non-Profit Benefit and Donations
Proceeds and donations from this year's Gala will go to Transformative Leadership for Change (TLC) and the South Asian Bar Association of North America Foundation (SABANA Foundation). TLC was built by and for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) leaders to transform ourselves, our organizations and the larger movement ecosystem so we can thrive in our leadership, build real power for our communities and see our visions of liberation come to life. The SABANA Foundation supports access to justice through grant making and educational programming, by fostering collaboration among nonprofit organizations serving South Asian communities in North America, and by advancing causes important to the communities we serve.
